NAVAL, Biliran- All the 230 barangay health workers (BHWs) in the municipality are hopeful for the approval of proposed Ordinance No. 19-2012 known as “An Ordinance Granting Benefits and Incentives to Accredited Barangay Health Workers and for Other Purposes” as the local government’s assistance for their voluntary services in the promotion of primary health care in their respective barangays.
+
CABUCGAYAN, Biliran- Rice production and household income of farmers within the Cabucgayan Agrarian Reform Community are expected to increase after the Agrarian department turned over two major agricultural support projects to the local government unit and to the irrigators association for maintenance.
  
In a public hearing conducted on Thursday (April 19) for said ordinance, the municipality of Naval will give accredited BHW hazard allowance only to those assigned in isolated areas where they are exposed to risks, and subsistence allowance equivalent to the meals they take in the course of their duty in these isolated areas. These claims are to be determined by the local health board and the local government.
+
Turned over were the rehabilitated 2.2-kilometer farm-to-market road in sitio Kasabangan, where some .5-kilometer was concreted for easy conveyance of farm products to the commercial districts; and the rehabilitated communal irrigation system in Barangay Balaquid that is anticipated to continuously supply water to about 60 hectares of rice lands throughout the year.
  
Trainings, education, and career enrichment programs via the Department of Health (DOH), Department of Education(DepEd), and other concerned agencies are waiting for accredited and qualified BHWs. However, if the accredited BHWs do not qualify to said benefits, anyone of its qualified children can avail of a scholarship benefit in the form of tuition fees in state colleges.
+
On the same occasion, a level-2 potable water supply project was likewise launched to provide a safe drinking water to about 208 households.
  
To help all BHWs uplift their quality of life, a second grade civil service eligibility shall be granted to accredited and qualified BHWs who have rendered five continuous service. If said BHW becomes a regular employee of the government, the total number of years served as BHW shall be credited to her length of service in computing retirement benefits.
+
Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Regional Director Eliasem Castillo said the rehabilitation of the farm-to-market road was undertaken by the Department of Public Works and Highways, while the irrigation system was rehabilitated by the National Irrigation Administration.
  
Free legal assistance and consultation services from the Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) shall be provided to BHWs in cases of coercion, interference, and in other civil and criminal cases filed by or against the BHWs in connection with the performance of their duties.
+
The local government unit (LGU) will take charge in the development of the potable water supply.
  
Since not all BHWs are qualified to the municipality’s enrollment to the Philippine Health Insurance, the proposed ordinance, mandates the automatic enrollment of all accredited BHWs to PhilHealth.
+
Castillo said these projects with a combined total amount of more than P10 million were jointly funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency and the Philippine government through the third phase of the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project (ARISP-3), with 50-percent contribution from the LGU as the latter’s counterpart to help agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) achieve the maximum production in their awarded lots under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform program
  
As volunteer workers with no monthly salary, the meager honorarium from the barangay is not enough for the subsistence of their families, the municipality shall provide counterpart funds equivalent to P200 per accredited BHW.
+
Aside from the 650 ARBs, provincial agrarian reform officer Elisea Orapa said more than 1,500 other residents in the area will likewise benefit from the road project.
  
In addition to their monthly honorarium, the local health board in coordination with other concerned agencies shall provide and set up a mechanism for access to loan services for organized BHWs in their community-based income generating projects in support to health programs and activities.
+
Meanwhile, provincial agrarian reform support services officer Ismael Aya-ay said the road project is anticipated to contribute in the tourism industry of the municipality.
  
Once a BHW reach the retirement age of 60 and was able to serve their respective barangay a total of ten continuous years, the municipal government of Naval shall provide said BHW a terminal pay of P500.00 per year of service but shall not exceed P10,000.00.
+
Aya-ay said that at the end of the road project is the town’s eco-tourism park with the “Kasabangan Falls” as its main attraction.
  
In case of death, the municipal and barangay government shall provide mortuary assistance to the family of accredited BHW. The amount will be determined by the Local Health Board and the concerned LGU.
+
Biliran Representative Rogelio Espina, on the same occasion, announced several rural development projects he and Governor Gerardo Espina Jr. are going to pour very soon, including the electrification leading to the Kasabangan Falls.
  
Though this ordinance, sponsored by Sangguniang Bayan Member Gabino S. Velasquez IV who is also a medical doctor, aims to help BHWs in recognition of their voluntary services to the barangays, the municipality of Naval represented by Executive Assistant Yolanda Opeña, expressed apprehensions on its budgetary implications and possible abuses.
+
Further, ARISP national project manager Celerina Afable announced that another irrigation project proposal for implementation under ARISP-3 in Barangays Magbangon, Libertad and Bunga in this town is now in progress.
 
 
After the arguments in the public hearing attended by barangay captains and officials, BHWs, and representatives from DOH, DILG, and other concerned agencies, the proposed ordinance will be subjected to perusal in the Local Health Board and the Local Finance Committee to make recommendations and for approval by Mayor Susan V. Parilla.
 
 
 
Once approved, Municipal Ordinance No. 19-2012 will take effect in 2013.

Natural Resources of Biliran, Philippines

Protect the environment

It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.

Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!


Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More


We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.


Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power and thermal energy conversion. We have too many black outs.
